Default Topps Finest Figuring out the Print Run

Hello all,
New to the hobby.
Little late to the game, but i just bought a bunch of finest.
Love the look and feel of these cards....

I think I understand how to figure a print run from data given,
but when looking at the stats I don't think I have enough information.
The only thing that might give me a clue is the Howards assuming there are no "non-refractors."

Am I missing something?
Can I figure out the print run from the info?
Thanks in advance


Configuration: 8 boxes per case. 3 six-pack mini-boxes per box. 5 cards per pack.

I remember we figured this out. 200 x 58 = 11600 master boxes, divided by 8 equals 1450 eight-box cases. Does this make sense to anyone? Hobby stores were four-box cases, and distributors were eight-box ones -- I remember that.

the non refractor Howard's are numbered to 459..... i think.... but they are numbered. anyway, that would make the print run:

58(459+149+50+1)/2 = 19111 master boxes. which is approx 2389 8 box cases.

Only if they are all redeemed. There will be plenty that aren't, and theoretically Topps will shred them.
